The Sony Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact smartphones are rumored to launch at the upcoming IFA 2017. However, there is no official confirmation about the launch of these devices from Sony till date. While we have seen several leaks about these devices, the design of the Xperia XZ1 smartphone is now revealed in the 3D CAD video. The design of the device in the video looks exactly similar to the one leaked before. Sony is still offering a large chunk of space on the top and bottom of the device. The metal build body comes with rounded edges for providing better grip.
The only major change to the design of the device is the protruding rear camera module. Beside the rear camera is the black strip holding the LED flash and laser autofocus. The power button along with volume rocker and dedicated shutter button are all placed on the right edge. As seen with earlier launched Xperia smartphones, the power button on this device also comes with an integrated fingerprint sensor. Unlike many other flagship smartphones, the Xperia XZ1 still offer a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting regular headsets or earphones.
On the left edge is the hybrid SIM card slot that can accept two SIM cards or one SIM card and one MicroSD card. It comes with a USB Type-C port for data transfer and charging. Talking about the specifications, the benchmark listing revealed the device to sport 5.1-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution. Under the hood is the 64-bit Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor coupled with Adreno 540 GPU and 4GB of RAM. While the listing mentioned the device to run on Android O, we expect it to launch with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box.
In the camera department, there is a 19MP sensor on the rear and a 13MP sensor on the front for selfies. While the IFA 2017 kicks off in just two weeks time, we might soon see the official confirmation from the company about this device. On the other hand, the Xperia XZ1 Compact also packs the similar hardware but is rumored to sport a smaller 4.6-inch display offering just HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details about these devices.
